The Big Pay Back!

The Big Pay Back!

2 Thessolanians 1:6
God is just; he will pay back trouble, to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled and to us well.

Sold me out, for chump change (yes you did!!!) Told me that they, they had it all arranged, you handed me down, and that’s a fact, you you’re pumped, you gotta get ready for the Big Pay Back!--James Brown

It bothers us when people we trust do us wrong, people who are supposed to be on our team turn on us, it is disturbing. Doesn’t it bother you when people trouble you for no other reason than mere jealousy? It’s unfortunate but chances are somebody somewhere will trouble you but you can’t waste energy plotting your revenge. Revenge belongs to God. God will trouble those who trouble you. Justice is a wheel that grinds slow but it grinds fine.

Even when men think they are getting away with something, God has a way of catching up with the people who trouble you.
  1. Jesus said to pray for those who persecute you. Why? Because Jesus knows that if God really gives them what they deserve for messing with you then they would be wiped out! That’s why Jesus prayed from the cross in excruciating pain, “Father forgive them for they don’t realize what they are doing.”
  2. Never take your own revenge, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay says the Lord. Romans 12:19
  3. God will send relief for those of us who are troubled. God knows how much we can bear and he will come to lift the heavy burdens. Help is on the way!
Dear God,

You already know about those who are causing us trouble. I will focus my energy on being productive and let you handle the trouble makers. Forgive me for wasting time worried about my troubles because I know trouble don’t last always.

In Jesus Name,
